Non-Birthday Day Off

I've got three days off work before my day job goes crazy with advising.  It's my non birthday year, today is my "birthday".  At least somewhere between today and tomorrow my birthday lands.  My to do list is enough to keep me busy for a month (or longer).  But I'm tackling things one at a … Continue reading Non-Birthday Day Off

Progress

Yesterday was exceedingly productive.  Secret Past is now available in e-book, large print paperback, and paperback.  I’m very proud of it and am thrilled that I’ve sold to people other than my family.  In addition to getting the final version of Secret Past out into the world yesterday, I worked on budget and paid bills, … Continue reading Progress

Dropped Cable

In the last two months my cable /internet provider informed me my bill would go up to about 175 a month.  I could not afford this.  I called them to ask what they would do about it.  I got horrible customer service. Apparently they only want to get new customers and don’t care about keeping … Continue reading Dropped Cable

Independence Day

Two days of rest and relaxation, you would think I'd be happy as a clam.  Do we really know if clams are happy?  I was for a bit.  I got great news from my daughters in Georgia.  They officially have a new apartment and Stephanie got a brand new car.  Hopefully this will be less … Continue reading Independence Day

Fix Wisconsin (and maybe the US too) part 1

So much strife and dissent has occurred in the last three months.  It is exhausting to try to keep up with all the things that are going on.  Frankly I’m tired of the spoiled little boys and girls who are making the decisions in our government.  It is all about one party or the other … Continue reading Fix Wisconsin (and maybe the US too) part 1

Rally

Last night Ken and Alicia stood on the bridge with about 75 - 100 other people protesting the governor's budget and the actions taken by the government.  Mom and I drove by several times, honking to show our support.  Mom took pictures (of course) and then I took her home.  Ken and I went to … Continue reading Rally

Budget Beating

Tonight I worked for an hour and half trying to figure out our new budget because I got tentative notification of the date that our checks will be lower.  Our household isn't going to be doing anything.  All I can afford from this point forward is to just pay the bills.  A HUGE concern for me … Continue reading Budget Beating

Various information

I know that some of you are probably tired of the political stuff.  I know I'm stressed and tired of it.  It is hard for me to understand why someone or a group of someones would so completely ignore what is right and what a huge number of people want for their own state... but … Continue reading Various information

A Look Forward

I'm feeling a lot stressed out tonight.  I get all sorts of emails from my union and other political places and I try to be very conservative about what I pass on.  Today one of the things I got from my union was a link state employees can go to plug in their gross income … Continue reading A Look Forward

Rights in Jeopardy

I’ve been reading the articles and announcements. I’m not one to just believe some of the propaganda put out by one side of an issue.  I will go looking for information until I can get information from the original source.I watched Walker say he was surprised that the protests were peaceful.  He’s called out the … Continue reading Rights in Jeopardy
